Testimonial

"Just a quick note to say thank you for such great service! The exchange kit arrived yesterday and we re looking forward to giving it a go this weekend. Many people are very quick to write letters of complaint but sometimes not so keen to give praise when due so thank you again."

At your appointment, an impression is taken of your child's hand using soft clay.

If your child has any kind of skin problem you must seek advice from your GP before having a cast done.

After your appointment, the impression is left to dry out thoroughly for at least 2-3 weeks. It is then painted in classic or pearl white or metallic bronze, silver or gold paint before being framed.

Choosing a frame
We have a huge selection of frames to choose from to match most homes and existing decor.
You will find it easier to choose your frame, mount and paint colours if you know where you will hang the finished frame.
To help you decide you can ask yourself a few questions, such as:

  •     Where will I hang my frame - do I need to match it to the decor or frames of an existing room? 
  •     What colour should the frame rim be?
  •     What colour should the impression be?
  •     What colour should the back mount be?
  •     Do I want an engraved name-plate with my child's name and age? Which colour? Which font?

The turnaround is normally 4-8 weeks depending on your caster but this can extend at busier times or during the school summer holidays. If you have a deadline please let your caster know when you book.

To help you decide which frame colour and paint combination to choose you can ask yourself a few questions, such as:

  • Where will I hang my frame - do I need to match it to the decor of an existing room?
  • Do I want to include a landscape or portrait photo in the frame?
  • How many 3D hand and foot casts/clay impressions do I want - 1, 2 or 4?
  • What combination of hands and feet do I want?
  • What size frame do I want?
  • What colour should the frame rim be?
  • What colour should the casts/impressions be?
  • What colour should the front and back mounts be?
  • Do I want an engraved name-plate with my child's name and age? Which colour? Which font?
